Towing capacity for 04 F350 diesel???
Need your expertise on what the towing capacity is for my truck.....a 2004 F350 Supercab, 6.0L Diesel, 4x4, automatic transmission, SRW, short-box. I believe it is 20,000lb, however cannot find it anywhere, not even in my Owner's Guide,...it lists the 6.8L engine...
Am planning to buy a fifth wheel, a Hitchhiker II L/S 29.5 FKTG with a weight of 11, 780lb with full freshwater and LP gas. (hitch weight is 2,180lb and axle weight is 9,600lb) , so could be a little more when I add clothes, groceries, and some beer, etc.
My truck gvw is 9900lb, however have yet to weigh it with full tank of diesel and the normal stuff we take on our trips. Given I do this, seems to me I will be below the gvw, however if the towing capacity is 20,000lb, seems I will be very close to towing capacity and presumably will have trouble pulling the load, particularly up in the mountains.
Appreciate if anyone could confirm the towing capacity for my 04 6.0L diesel truck.
As well, if I am tight, can a Superchip, or similar product, help my cause? or will it simply screw it up?
Thanks, look forward to your comments. Thanks,
